bring me sunshine...
Yes, you’ve guessed it. As we’re still waiting for anything like sunshine to find us in our little corner of the shire, I’ve had to take measures to make our own…
I’m happy using gold - although generally as a highlight rather than a feature. But yellow and orange? Well, there comes a time.
This is being worked using various sewing threads, silks and exquisite purples and greens all the way from Texas, (with huge thanks to Laura, who sent them to me in a parcel of delights which certainly lifted our wintery spirits!).
All worked through layers of organza and shot silk, with additions of recycled sari silk.
I assume I’ll just keep adding stitches until the real sun finally decides to make an appearance.
Hoping things are warm and sunny wherever you are.
